There you go again

Adam, There you go again with a South Boston street location. It's East 8th (Eighth) Street. Not East 8 Street. You get all the streets around Boston named correctly. But when it comes to you to name a South Boston location street address, you always F--- Up. What's the problem with South Boston street names.

Why do you have such a hard time with south boston street names? According to the city's assessing department, it's actually E Eighth St., not East 8th St.

You have a typo

Which is okay, since as it was pointed out, even Adam occasionally shows the need for a copy editor. Or Adam could have done what the street view shows, which is to spell out Eighth. 8th is typically accepted, though.

Adam made a simple error, which he should correct, but I see no intent to debase the neighborhood with that.

There is no excuse...

There is no excuse for such shoddy journalism.

OTOH, one of those kids is really banged up. BFD and EMS knew where to go, time is of the essence.
I don't give a damn what AG calls the street, I just want to see a followup that the kid is doing better.

I'll say this much

Your second point is spot on. Dickering about the typo does distract from what the kids are going through. I am hoping for a full recovery.
